An incomplete team’s iteration velocity is limited by its missing pieces and its budget.

Incomplete ZebraThat is to say, if we’re missing a key skill or role, we’re stuck. We will be unable to learn or make any progress in experimenting until members of our team are able to acquire that skill.

OR…you can hire someone to fill in a gap. That gap might be a team that is:

  • Selling an enterprise CRM with no sales person.
  • In Ukraine selling to the German market with no one who speaks fluent German.
  • From Vietnam creating an eCommerce site for American consumers where the designers has no experience with U.S.

I like the metaphor of white horse as incomplete zebra. 

We all have things we're not good at. Building a team is about acknowledging that.
